Covid19 lockdown no doubt, brought different experiences to different people, and Love Island’s Amber Davies is not an exception.

Amber claimed that for her, the period was the “saddest she’d ever been”.

The winner of the 2017 season of Love Island reality show said that she was left struggling to cope with how everything stopped when the coronavirus pandemic began.

Sharing her experiences, she said : “I’ve experienced so much and yet in lockdown I was the saddest I’ve ever been in my life. I think that was because I was processing everything, I was processing absolutely everything that had happened.

“All I wished that I’d done differently was that I had therapy as soon as I came out or six months after I came out. I think I would have handled things so differently.”

Although she found it so difficult, however through some therapy session, she succeeded in pulling through.

“When I had a bit of a weird turn in lockdown I did have therapy and I did start talking about the transition that happened in my life.

“That’s all you need, you just need to talk about it.”

Amber went on to reveal how she succeeded through the lockdown periods. “I’ve been 100 miles an hour for the last four years so when it all came to this silence I was like, I don’t know who I am, I need to be working.”

“Lockdown was tough and the more lockdowns we went into the tougher it was getting, but I just feel like for me now there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

“I feel like I’m getting my mojo back, which is good.” She concluded.

Recall that Amber won Love Island with her ex-boyfriend Kem Cetinay, but the duo broke up just a few months after the show.

After her journey on the show, and her her relationship coming to an end, she decided to try again at going into musical theatre, which she trained to do before Love Island fame.
